PROVIDENCE, RI – Visiting Rhode Island College's hot start from behind the three-point line was too much for the Johnson & Wales University women's basketball team to overcome. The Wildcats lost a 61-38 decision to the crosstown rival Anchorwomen on Tuesday.
Rhode Island College: 8-3
Johnson & Wales: 1-10
The Anchorwomen outscored the Wildcats, 22-10, in the opening 10 minutes thanks to four three-pointers. RIC would only make three more three-pointers the rest of the evening.
Rhode Island College gave the Wildcats fits on the offensive end of the floor, holding the hosts to 32.7 percent shooting and zero three-pointers.
The visitors doubled up JWU on the glass with a 49-21 rebounding advantage that led to 21 second-chance points.
Leading all players was RIC's Brooke Young with a baker's dozen. Willcia McBorrough chipped in 11.
The Wildcats are off until after the New Year when they travel to Eastern Connecticut State for a 6 p.m. tipoff on January 2.
